Memphis went into the 4th with a 10pt lead. The bench was good defensively but couldn't generate any offense against a team that was short handed with G-league level talent. Tyus & Bane didn't have their best games. DIllon, Winslow & Ja shot a combined 17 for 40 while more efficient options could have had more looks.
OKC went to the line 34 times & were + 5, relying on the 3 ball. They shot the 3 ball like a team that had nothing to lose (28 - 34) for roughly 60% on volume. While Memphis 3vtop shot takers where 17-40.
Memphis had 92 possessions to OKC's 70 (+22 possessions). Hot 3pt shooting continues to burn Memphis poor decisions, poor shooting, & bad/careless TO's. Think about any NO's match & you have an idea of this game. Unguarded, I doubt they repeat that shooting performance.
Jenkins deserves some criticism for the 14-2 run against the bench that erased a 10pt lead & built OKC's confidence for that big 4th Q.
